Sheffield Academic Medicine Society (SAMS)
Sheffield Academic Medicine Society (SAMS) is a primarily student-led society that was founded to raise awareness and promote participation in medical research among students. This is done by facilitating the free exchange of ideas between the students and the University or hospital staff.
- To raise the awareness of and enthusiasm for a career in academic medicine at Sheffield Medical School
- To maintain a research platform which enables students to participate in research happening in the University and hospitals.
- To develop avenues by which students can take steps towards a career in academic medicine by providing opportunities to build a research-orientated portfolio and acquire fundamental research skills and understanding.
